MOSCOW, 13 Oct. The constitutional Committee of the state Duma will discuss at a meeting Tuesday of an amendment to the second reading of the bill on approving the scheme “slicing” single-member districts for Duma elections for the next ten years, reported to journalists on Tuesday the head of the Committee Vladimir Pligin.
In 2014 was adopted the law on the return to the mixed system of elections to the state Duma, which provides for the election of deputies by party lists and in single member constituencies (225). In early September, the CEC submitted to the state Duma a “sliced” single-member districts for the elections of 2016, the head of the constitutional and Federal committees Vladimir Pligin and Viktor kidyaev (both EP) has prepared a bill of approval for ten years.
According to the project, most districts will be in Moscow (15), the suburbs (11) and St. Petersburg (8). Seven constituencies will be formed in Sverdlovskaya region, six — in Bashkiria and Tatarstan.
“I have to say that the number of amendments that have been, relatively small. There is a comprehensive amendment and under this amendment raises issues about certain changes in the approach of forming single-mandate districts in Tatarstan that is due solely to the issues of ease of voting of voters — and in the Vladimir region”, — said the Deputy.
So, in Tatarstan the sentence is due to geographical and logistical feasibility: in an embodiment, the CEC of the Russian Federation a number of districts located on both banks of the rivers Volga or Kama, the amendments correct this deficiency in almost all districts.
“Thus, we can say that, in principle, political parties, judging by the amendments, adopted and agree with the aspects of the formation of the scheme of single-mandate constituencies,” said Pligin.
